Author Notes: Just like their non-vegan counterpart, Yamadillas (vegan quesadillas) make for a quick dinner on busy weeknight. Throw them on the grill to make this simple vegan meal extra special.Kayli Dice

Makes: 4 yamadillas

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups cooked black beans
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Put the cubed sweet potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until fork-tender.
  2. Transfer cooked sweet potatoes to a mixing bowl and add salsa, chili powder, lime juice, and nutritional yeast. With a fork, smash and mix until well-combined. Fold in black beans. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Spread a heaping ½ cup of the sweet potato mixture onto a tortilla. Top with a second tortilla and gently press it down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Slice into triangles and serve.
